GolnK back into history- when Coach Ted Sclieid took over at S. H. S., some very interesting information is revealed. Sterling ha.s won MX games, Dixon eight, and five were tied. Of the tied games four were scoreless and the other was 6 to 8. Year by Yew Recollections Dixon won the first game in 1928 by a 13 to 0 wore. Sterling gained almost 300 yards and Dixon le.v; than 100 but Dixon won as n result, of a blocked punt and an intercepted pasa. Sterling won the second game it is with sincere and deep rrcrrt that we record the passing of our very close and dear friend Gus Schrn- clei. 46, Cedar Rapids. Ta.. nine times national dirt track automobile racing champion, who was fatally injured Wednesday while raciiiR at the Louisiana state fair track at Shreveport. La His speeding racer apparently locked wheels with one driven b y Jimmy Wilburn. The cars spun in a cloud of dust and Gils m- a s He a:; Kurrna. thrown into the Gl'S SCHRADERinfipid.

After funeral sen-Ices at man ran wild In this game. It was the last year that Art Bowers coached football at Dixon. C. B. TJndell became coach In 1929. Dixon pushed Sterling; all over the" field In the first game but failed to score. The procedure was reversed In the final game that year in bitter weather, but still no score. cold Dixon won by a 12 to 0 «cpre in : c-. the first game of 1930. McReynolds, - ---- Daniels and company won -easily. Then came the Thanksgiving day 1 fame. It was played in lero, weather. 1 Dixon had a clean slate for the sea- : .

Our Shreveport the body will be sent to Cedar Rapids for additional rites. Gus got much of his early experience in racing at the old Mineral Springs track and the three-quarter- mile track at Speedbowl park. He stopped here last spring to introduce his wife. While he never made an open statement regarding his retirement from the racJng game, it is believed this was to have been his last season. The racing game loses one of the best drivers and one of the best gentleman of the hazardous game. We will miss his friendly visits and letters and the writeups in papers and magazines as he smashed track records all over the game thttmata " famous when he McReynolds Dixon The year 1931 found by scores of 21 to The first game In lets tie.

Football Technique Today: Guard Play By John Wlethe (Detroit Lions All-League Guard > Today when we talk of the mode running guard, we speak of speed^ FUMedness — and — mrick — thinking- coupled with sure footedness. This is a far cry from the old conception ol the guard whose prime requisites were beef and brawn, is this streamlined guard of today. The good guard must be buUt along flKe linea of a sturdy blocking back or • speedy IwlrlsnUsHsg- faHbaelt; in order to pivot to either side of the center to lead team Interference. A big strong offensive lineman pulling behind the line not verv fast could easily spoil any end •weep or an off tackle smash by not getting the jump on his pivot down the field. The fundamental requirements of a regular lineman makes a good guard too. He must have trigger- ttke reactions to get the* jump on his opponent. He must get underneath the man with an individual thrust. after which he must control his opponent to be able to retain contact on offense or to free him*elf l 'bn detente. Variance in weight from 190 to 210 pounds will help the running guards on straight line bucks to charge out the heavier tackles and backer-uppers, often designated as his offensive responsibility. Must Be Speedy On the defense as a backer-upper limself in the five-man line, setup, he must possess the speed to plug up gaps on either side of the line. Then top, twinkle-toed receivers are nenacing his pass lone continuous- y, which require* an agile, sure- tooted player to thwart their com- ftleUon.

Grcenlcaf Rallies to Beat Kelly in Billiard Tourivcy PHILADKLPmA — <M>i — Ask George Kelly what it means to miss the boat and then get set for a long chat—the Phtladelphian is now an e'xpert. Kelly came close to staging the most thunderous upset of the $10,000 world's pocket billiards championship last night when he took a 90 to 50 lead over Ralph Oreenleaf— and then watched the Chicago marvel knock in' to to run out on him in the 12 innings and win the match. Greenleaf, battling for his 18th world's championship, trailed 64 to 1 in the eighth inning but then caught fire to hang up runs of 47, 10 and the unfinished 65. Greenleaf had to share the spotlight with Wee Willie Mosconi. defending champion from Philadelphia, who all but brushed off the table with Don Tozer, three-time loser from Decatur, 111. Mosconi required just eight Innings to overwhelm To«er, 115 to 15. and he did it with the tournament's high run of 12 in the fourth inning and wound up with a 37.
